Creating New Paradigms of Understanding: Action and Ecology
- 441 Downloads
As the final concluding chapter of my book, I have focused on certain significant implications of the conceptualisations of nature in Indian thought on moral action and conservation. The applicability of these interpretations for creating a framework of ecological ethics is analysed. The conclusion of an “eco-moral action” based framework for ecological ethics then places the themes discussed earlier into a modern context for conservation and other ecologically relevant themes.
